When you receive a media file from one of your WhatsApp contacts and you download, it automatically saves to your phone’s local storage which can be seen in your gallery but for reasons best known, one can decide to hide their Whatsapp media files from showing in their gallery.
But how do you do that?
Once you hide your media files from showing in your gallery, all received content from WhatsApp won’t be visible to anyone who gains access to your default photo gallery. I’ve put below some steps to help you hide your Whatsapp media files from showing in your default gallery.
1. If you want to hide WhatsApp media files from the gallery, open your WhatsApp main screen, tap the overflow icon (three vertical dots) in the top right.
